We believe that there is considerable synergy between the assets and management of the two companies that can be developed going forward. We look forward to working with the Cancana Board and staff to achieve these goals."

Mr. William Pfaffenberger, Chairman and CEO of Cancana stated: "The conclusion of this transaction is an exciting time for Cancana as we envision being able to bring Parauna, Amazon's primary asset, back into commission and potentially realize immediate cash flow. The hard work that Amazon has put into this project to date is demonstrated by the infrastructure already in place at Parauna. The Board and Management of Cancana also look forward to working with the team at Amazon.

Through this transaction, Cancana has acquired 2 alluvial diamond and gold properties and two Options Amazon held on further diamond and gold claims. The primary property for Amazon is Paruana. This consists of 5 contiguous claims along the Parauna River, with a processing facility located adjacent to the claims. Parauna will require further exploration work as well as further investment in order to fine tune the processing facility and operations as well as beginning an exploration program. The Parauna mine and processing plant are located 21 km from the town of Gouveia, approximately 250 km north of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. The property lies within the Diamantina region, which has produced most of Brazil's diamonds since large-scale mining commenced in 1729, and between the late 18th and early 19th centuries was the world's foremost diamond producer. The second property named Pitomba is located near Espigao, in the state of Rondonia.
